Sled Pull last night in White Plains, GA

Went to White Plains, GA last night to the Liberty Antique Tractor Pull. They did a 7500 lb Open and Street class, and a 8500 lb Open and Street class. I pulled in both 8500 lb classes. This was my first time ever hooking a truck to a sled, so the nerves were flying. Pulled 253 feet and 263 feet. The track was extremely dry and hard, so I kept letting out of it thinking I was wheel hopping, but I never wheel hopped once. It kind of makes me mad because I could have really got in to it and probably made full pulls. I was happy with it for it being my first time pulling though, and will most likely go back now that I some what know what I am doing. I ran the 275 v4. I will have video up later tonight.

Yea, I was extremely nervous. Very happy that nothing broke, and I was pretty happy with the pulls for my first time.

Videos of your pulls and Kyle popping his driveshaft would be great. What would be even better would be a video of the lifted LMM D/Max who about touched his tires together

I wish we had taken some vids of that LMM. I will post up Kyle's video as well.

If you can figure out how to get them on YouTube..... I am not real sure how to do it though. My girlfriend has software that came with her video camera that puts it on YouTube for us.
